I won’t have to guess what to do, if ever I have an empty NEST.
Instead, I will simply ask: Hey Lord, what’s NEXT?!
I pray His good deposit made in my abilities have been worth His INVEST.
Parenting is forever but a grown child takes 20 or more years to VEST.
Yes, sometimes it may have felt like a TEST.
But my solace was always found in His TEXT.
Perhaps at some point, He will even allow me to get a little bit of REST.
So, when that day comes, I will still praise, LEST...
Lest I forgot to THANK Him, as I know He helped me BEST.
And I will enjoy life as a new adventure, maybe travel where someone will say: “Be my GUEST“.
Thanks Lord, you make my life blessed with ZEST.
Surely Lord, I look forward to YOUR Plans as MY NEXT.
I am forever BLESSED.
